Our Le Sud Dining Experience | Valentine's Day Date Night | Alicia Yarrish Photography | Le Sud | Clausen, Luxembourg

I’ve been so excited to write this Monday Rendezvous! Valentine’s Day was last week and I simply have to brag on my guy. Teylor made this Valentine’s absolutely perfect!

My Surprise Valentine’s Date Night

All I knew was that we were leaving at 4:30 p.m. and that Brittany (the fabulous newborn photographer of Brittany Brooke Photography) was going to be watching baby Grey!

I was not-so-secretly wishing for French food, so when I realized we were heading to Luxembourg I couldn’t be happier! We parked and walked a bit in the Luxembourg City walkplatz and found ourselves at my favorite macaroon boutique- Laduree. I’m thinking it wasn’t an accident, but it felt like the perfect happenstance.

After we soaked up all the smells and picked out our favorite flavours we took our macaroons to the main square to an adorable cafe for some vino. Even in the winter sitting outside at European cafe is one of my favorite things to do. They have fires going and blankets set out so you can still enjoy the cities beautiful all year round.

Then I assumed we would be walking to our restaurant, but we hopped back in the car and headed towards Clausen (which got me SO excited!). We parked at strolled down the candlelit mini city center to an outdoor log cabin that said Merry Christmas. Teylor and I love all the cabins Europeans put up for Christmas Markets so we aren’t mad at all that they didn’t take this one down! It was filled with outdoor furniture with a million pillows, blankets, and firepits- basically the perfect place for a pre-dinner cappuccino.

I still didn’t know which Clausen restaurant we’d be dining at, but seriously, any of them would have been perfect!

Our dream dining experience- Le Sud

Then it happened- Le Sud! The restaurant Teylor and I have been dreaming of going to ever since we moved here! And it did not disappoint. Le Sud features the most beautiful dining room filled with chandeliers, elegant decor, and so many French windows that I just oh and ah over. Teylor and I both agree that it’s the best food we’ve ever had!

Our server announced each dish to us in French as it was served. They all sounded eloquent and perfect, but I couldn’t tell you exactly what ingredients were involved in each. Only that they were all delicious and involved a lot of truffles. Side note- if you’ve never had truffled Brie, run, don’t walk! It’s the most amazing cheese I think I’ve ever tasted and a new staple in my home!

At the end of our three-plus hour dining experience, we were so full and so happy. It was our best Valentine’s date night thus far!

Photographing a wedding at Le Sud is definitely on my bucket list now! It’s the most gorgeous restaurant I’ve ever seen and a little bird called Google told me they host wedding receptions. So! I’m putting it out in the universe that I would absolutely adore the opportunity to photograph a wedding or event at Le Sud in Luxembourg!

The time I forgot Valentine’s Day

And if we’re Instagram friends, which I hope we are, you saw my Valentine’s fail… Last Tuesday Teylor came home with a card and a pot of beautiful flowers! I’m so excited for my new orchids as my desk plant, but at the time I instantly felt terrible that I had forgotten whatever holiday it was that I was getting flowers and a card for!

Well, Teylor thought I would be expecting such a gift on Valentine’s Day which was the next day, Wednesday, so he surprised me on Tuesday. Which definitely was a surprise because I didn’t have his gift. Oops.

Turns out that his gift was put on a boat instead of a plane so we’ll be celebrating Valentine’s day again in 6-8 weeks 😉

iPhone photos aren’t normally my jam, but I couldn’t resist! Here are some of our Luxembourg date night at Le Sud!

    It was the most amazing surprise I think I’ve ever received- he’s a sweetie! And THANK YOU! My designer, Louise of The Autumn Rabbit, and I collaborated on it last year and man oh man. She took my personality and my photographs and brought my brand to life with this website! I cannot say enough good things about her! I love hearing compliments on it but seriously- she did all the hard work!

    Lame pizza date nights are sometimes the best! We don’t do fancy for every holiday or event- not by a long shot. We love our pizza and netflix nights <3
